Will Ernst & Young FSO Start Forced Rankings Next?

We're getting word things are becoming a little claustrophobic over at Uncle Ernie's house.

In NY – FSO (EY) apparently there are so many high performers at staff 2 that discussions regarding ratings are still ongoing to help normalize the rankings.
"Normalize" is never a good word. Animal shelters "normalize" their populations in the euthanization room when the shelter is too full ifyoufeelme. KPMG has been trimming the fat too and but such is the business.
 
The EY contingent has been awfully quiet lately, which we hope doesn't mean they're too busy polishing up their résumés to get in touch and let us know what's going on over there. Can someone please send out a smoke signal so we at least know you're OK?
